I have to admit, I only bought this book because one of my friends was raving how amazing the theatre production was. I never really wanted to read a book where a dog dies. I was traumatized enough after I am Legend * Robert Matheson but after a small research online, I was impressed on how well the book did.
The book received praise from outlets like the New York Times and from noted authors including Ian McEwan. To date, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time has been published in more than thirty-five countries and has become an international best seller. In the United Kingdom, Haddon’s book has sold more than 2.6 million copies, making it the third best-selling book of the decade.
